holy insomnia…

a newer version of “Coral” with more to come!

 

Coral

In the drag of a full moon, my face unfolds:
a fan of arms heralding the fractured

luminescence. I stand in the place
of my birth, on the backs of my foremothers.

Their tiny skeletons are rapt. Their paled,
bone-clean marbled faces bow under the sea’s

weight, and my own. Skin pocked with caverns,
preserves the tunnels of their former, breathing

life, and they remain–stilled–captured
in their death-masks. This is my time, before

I am pulled under like them. I stand, spread,
breathing out a translucent cloud of my own.

They root my feet in the brittle,
unforgiving sand, sending nightward

orbs of life, grains of my own daughter’s strand.

And here are two television series that I am madly into these days:

ERROL MORRIS’ “FIRST PERSON” SERIES OF INTERVIEWS:

SIR DAVID ATTENBOROUGH’S “LIFE IN COLD BLOOD” SERIES ABOUT REPTILES PRODUCED BY THE BBC, AND IN AMERICA NOW ON ANIMAL PLANET:

Slightly unrelated, some fashion finds that are tickling my fancy right now too:
